Cadre organisationnel

The United Nations (UN) Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. OCHA also ensures there is a framework within which each actor can contribute to the overall response efforts. OCHA's mission is to mobilize and coordinate effective and principled humanitarian action in partnership with national and international actors in order to alleviate human suffering in disasters and emergencies; advocate the rights of people in need; promote preparedness and prevention and facilitate sustainable solutions.

This job opening announcement involves internship opportunities with OCHA Intergovernmental Policy Section (IGPS) in New York, United States. The intern will be under the general guidance and direct supervision of the Chief and Humanitarian Affairs Officers of IGPS. The internship is being offered for a minimum period of three (3) months and maximum period of six (6) months, depending on the needs and requirements of IGPS and the readiness of the applicant, and beginning at a mutually agreed time.

IGPS works to ensure intergovernmental support for strengthening the normative framework for humanitarian action through inclusive dialogue and partnerships with and policy support to Member States on humanitarian priority issues in the General Assembly and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. This includes, inter alia, preparing the annual reports of the United Nations Secretary-General on the coordination of international humanitarian assistance; policy advice and Secretariat support to Member States in the negotiations on annual humanitarian resolutions; organizing the annual ECOSOC Humanitarian Affairs Segment in support of the Chairmanship of the ECOSOC Vice-President; monitoring and promoting humanitarian priorities in relevant intergovernmental processes; supporting informal Member State forums. The work of IGPS is central to providing the operational and policy guidance and mandates on coordinating humanitarian assistance to OCHA and the wider humanitarian system. Intergovernmental processes provide a key opportunity for IGPS and OCHA to advocate for a strong humanitarian coordination system and build awareness, understanding and support for the international humanitarian system and for strengthening humanitarian action in support of field operations. The work of IGPS involves daily liaison with stakeholders such as Member States, United Nations agencies, International Committee of the Red Cross, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and humanitarian non-governmental organizations.

This internship shall be based in New York, Unites States. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, interns may be requested to undertake the internship remotely in view of constraints regarding visa issuance, international travel and access to UN premises. The intern must therefore be willing and prepared to undertake the internship remotely, in agreement with the hiring manager, for a part or the entirety of the internship. The work hours during the internship shall be determined based on individual discussion between the intern and the supervisor(s), taking into consideration the minimum requirements of the Organization and the time difference between the hosting office and the location of the intern. In the event the internship is undertaken remotely, the intern should be prepared to work, to the extent feasible, in accordance with the office hours in New York. The internship is UNPAID and full-time.

IGPS is recruiting interns on a continuing basis primarily for the following periods:

Charte des Nations Unies

Aux termes du paragraphe 3 de l’Article 101 de la Charte des Nations Unies, la considération dominante dans le recrutement du personnel doit être la nécessité d’assurer à l’Organisation les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. Ne seront pas retenues les candidatures des personnes qui ont commis des violations du droit international des droits de l’homme, des violations du droit international humanitaire, des actes d’exploitation, d’atteintes ou de harcèlement sexuels, ou au sujet desquelles il existe des raisons plausibles de croire qu’elles ont été impliquées dans la commission de tels actes. L’expression « exploitation sexuelle » désigne le fait d’abuser ou de tenter d’abuser d’un état de vulnérabilité, d’un rapport de force inégal ou de rapports de confiance à des fins sexuelles, y compris mais non exclusivement en vue d’en tirer un avantage pécuniaire, social ou politique. On entend par « atteinte sexuelle » toute atteinte physique de nature sexuelle commise par la force, sous la contrainte ou à la faveur d’un rapport inégal, ou la menace d’une telle atteinte. Le harcèlement sexuel s'entend de tout comportement déplacé à connotation sexuelle raisonnablement propre ou de nature à choquer ou humilier, lorsqu'il entrave la bonne marche du service, est présenté comme une condition d'emploi ou crée au lieu de travail un climat d'intimidation, d'hostilité ou de vexation, et lorsque ce comportement est assez grave pour justifier le licenciement de son auteur. La candidature de personnes qui ont commis des infractions autres que des infractions mineures au code de la route ne sera pas retenue.

Sera dûment prise en considération l'importance d'un recrutement effectué sur une base géographique aussi large que possible. Aucune restriction ne sera imposée par l'Organisation à l'accès des hommes et des femmes, dans des conditions égales, à toutes les fonctions, dans ses organes principaux et subsidiaires. Le Secrétariat de l'Organisation des Nations Unies est un espace non-fumeurs.

La considération dominante dans l’engagement, la mutation ou la promotion du personnel est la nécessité de s’assurer les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. En acceptant une offre d’engagement, les membres du personnel sont soumis(es) à l’autorité du Secrétaire général, qui peut leur assigner l’une quelconque des tâches ou l’un quelconque des postes de l’Organisation des Nations Unies, conformément à l’alinéa c) de l’article 1.2 du Statut du personnel. Dans ce contexte, tous les membres du personnel recrutés sur le plan international sont tenus de changer de fonctions périodiquement à l’intérieur d’un même lieu d’affectation ou dans un autre lieu d’affectation, dans les conditions fixées par le Secrétaire général.

Les candidats sont invités à respecter scrupuleusement toutes les instructions disponibles sur la plateforme de recrutement en ligne Inspira. Pour des informations plus détaillées, ils ou elles peuvent consulter le manuel d'instructions pour le candidat, en cliquant sur le lien hypertexte « Manuels » sur le côté supérieur droit de la page d'accueil de leur compte Inspira.

Les candidats doivent fournir des informations exhaustives et précises conformément aux instructions fournies sur la plateforme Inspira. Une fois la candidature envoyée, aucune modification, suppression ou révision, ni aucun ajout ou changement ne pourra être fait.
